4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover?" A little worried about being under cabanas and some reports that this is an obstructed view. There were a ton of cat 4s open so a little bummed but we shall see what being so close to the pool is like!

3. How many days before the cruise were you assigned your room? 09
4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover?" I feel like we got a leftover. This room is all the way forward and is located under the fitness center, which previous reviews have said was a nuisance as you're woken up early by loud banging/noises from the gym. All cruise lines keep a log of which cabins get the most complaints, so I feel like DCL knows this is a problem cabin which is why they left it for a guarantee passenger. Ultimately, even with the balcony overhang from the spa and the potential for noise, I'm super excited for this cruise and will have a great time no matter what!
5. If you booked more than one room, are they close together? I'm shocked that our two cabins are connecting!! We got assigned 10508 and 10510! So thrilled about that!

4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover?" Happy. I always like staying on Deck 8. I knew we wouldn't get our "dream" room but I also knew for getting 40% off the fare we would have normally booked we would be fine. Normally we cruise with 4 people in our family but on this cruise it's only two, so we were ok with a smaller verandah room. This is probably the biggest reason we went VGT for the first time in 7 cruises...and it would be impossible for me to be disappointed saving almost $2k.

4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover?" Totally leftovers since at no point did they sell the 11C rooms!
5. If you booked more than one room, are they close together? N/A however was hoping they’d put me in the same room, since they never sold 11C rooms they absolutely could have done it too

4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover?" Happy, looks like a good room, pretty close to the stairs. It’s forward and we’ve always cruised aft so interested to see how that will be.

I’ll add that we are 2 adults and 2 kids. It looks like on the Magic all of the navigator’s verandah rooms only sleep 3, so I felt like we could book VGT and not get one of those. Worked out for us!
